Misconceptions about Organic Farming
Organic Farming cannot feed the world
Many critics of organic faming say that Organic farming cannot feed the world. A study by UC, Davis found that after eight years organic crops yield were comparable to that of conventional farming techniques. Tomatoes were the only plant that yielded less than conventional methods but within three years organic tomato yields were equal to conventional yields and in the last year of the study, the organic yield surpassed the conventional yield of tomato (Vasilikiotis). Another study done by the University of Michigan has found that the in developing nations organic farming can produce up to three time the amount of food as conventional methods (Organic farming). These studies and many others have come up with the same results. Organic farming can feed the world much to the chagrin of multi nationals.
